Keep reading if you want to find out more about this month's beauty box, kawaii and... Kpop group BTS!
What is 'Kawaii'?
The Japanese word kawaii roughly translates to 'cute' but it's actually so much more than that! It's anything that's cute and trendy especially amongst young people. Especially in Japan cute characters such as the famous cat Hello Kitty are kawaii, anime, manga and game characters are kawaii, pastel and bright colored fashion is kawaii and even in Korea there are more and more cute characters these days thanks to the messaging app Line that allows users to create their own stamps!
Even though there are a few Western brands who have cute products in their collections, Japanese and Korean brands are the masters of this! Not only drugstore brands targeting young girls but also high end brands like Shu Uemura had to incorporate the cuteness of Japan into their collections, because let's be fair, who can resist a Pikachu eyeshadow palette?
Shu Uemura's Pokemon Collection will release this Fall! (read more)
The Kirby collection that was released earlier this year was also adorable! (read more)
So what about Korean beauty and kawaii?
Korean beauty products are not only trendy, there are definitely very cute ones too! Some Korean brands like Missha even used Japanese characters like Pokemon for their collections, the best of both worlds! Recently upcoming cute characters are the BT21 characters which were designed by the famous kpop group... BTS! The boys are taking over the world with their music and good looks. Having been number 1 on Itunes in over 65 countries The adorable BT21 characters were each created by a member of the k-pop group and have their own unique personalities.
We are in LOVE with these cute BT21 products!
